Ftp upload issues


#1

After loading the index.html…I was expecting to see my site up live immediately. I loaded index.html into the mysite.com folder. Did I do something wrong? Any suggestions?

I’ve already transferred my domain to dreamhost.

Any help would be great!

If your domain is pointed toward our servers, it actually should show up immediately once placed in the directory named after the domain.

Are you sure you’ve completed the DNS transfer? It can take 24 to 48 hours after you initiate a transfer for it to complete, so you might still have to wait if that’s the case.

If this doesn’t help, you should contact us at Tech Support (from the web panel, or at support@dreamhost.com).
